I keep a healthy lawn using natural fertilizer, and my lawn is about weed free.

In Prairie Park weeds are a cheap/lazy issue not an environmental issue.

Machiavellit_mania:

Mowing doen't control weeds, it spreads them.

Just because a person wants a nice, manicured lawn it makes him or her superficial? Why do you mow, then? I bet you even weed whip!

Also, according to The American Heritage Dictionary, although dandelion is a plant native to Eurasia, it is widely naturalized as a WEED in North America.

Now, get back to your lawn.

Your comment is superficial (shallow) at best.

doen't? How about doesn't! Sorry about that, I couldn't see my spelling error for the weeds...

Turn lawns into gardens and mulch. Go for the Wildscape.

Then pull a few weeds.

A horticulture instructor would always remind that pulling weeds and/or mowing was not only the safest but most reliable.

Our waterways are poisoned due to landscape chemicals and agriculture. So much is washed into the streets then on to the rivers and creeks.

Next time you see spraying on windy days call KDHE. Get a license tag. Toxic carcinogenic drift is not nice.

"Poisoned Water" suggested that there so many new chemicals out and about that public water services may not know how to test,remove or know anything about. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/poisonedwaters/

My lawn looks fantastic because of all the chemicals I put on it. Completely weed free and very very green! I love it! As far as the creatures go, it's either death by chemicals, hammer or foot stomp. My lawn.

Vinegar in a spray bottle will take care of them if the pop up in your brick sidewalk or along the curbs. Just don't spray it on anything else.
